    This is a great museum for families! The iMax theater is also really nice, but my personal favorite is the hands-on exhibits upstairs.

    Rather disappointing.

    If you are going for B of A member weekend, only the cardholder gets in. Be prepared to pay for additional guests.

    Right now there's a shark exhibit on in the large exhibit hall and at certain times of the day you can view a shark dissection. Its really a well thought out exhibit.

    The people that work here are fantastic. They take time to explain everything to you and have a great attitude. Great place to take the kiddos.

    If you're a Bank of America card holder, you get into the Exhibit free!

    Really not worth the money. The science center is nice but the children' museum is a disappointment.

    Get in FREE the first weekend of every month after flashing your Bank of America card.

    Don't expect too much from the cafe. They only have hot dogs, nachos, salads, and sliced bread sandwiches. Pretty disappointing. :-(

    Bigger bathrooms with changing tables upstairs. Tiny bathrooms downstairs by the childrens' area makes changing diapers a pain.

    Visit the planetarium shows, where you can learn about the Texas night sky and explore the Wonders of the Universe, peering deep into space through the eyes of the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope. Read more

    Little ones up to age seven have a space of their own in the MNS Children’s Museum, including a “town” with six play sets for imaginative minds. Powered by

    In 2006, the Dallas Museum of Natural History and The Science Place merged into one institution. The planetarium produces programs exploring the far reaches of space.

    My favorite museum in Dallas - definitely check out all of the exhibits, planetarium and IMAX.
